More to the point though: Any unauthorized duplication of these roms in any form (burned to cartridge or just copied over the internet) is illegal as it would be a copyright violation. Just because the game wasn't released does not mean it is exempt from copyright law. That being said, since they we...

Oh man, it just came to me in one of those "DUH!" moments: Duke Nukem: Dukepocalypse It practically writes itself. And you could intentionally make it as campy as hell because that would be true to the game! Duke (as played by Bruce Campbell, of course) could just run around blowing stuff up and sho...

I was going to suggest The Secret of Monkey Island, but that would never work with the whole Pirates of the Carribean thing going on. Too bad too, this probably could be made on a small budget. I actually have part of a story worked out for a metroid movie, but knowing me I doubt anyone else would a...

For the most part: No. Most lightguns work by reading a CRT's beam as it moves acrossed the screen, LCD based displays have no beam, so the gun can't read anything. However, there is the LCD TopGun which uses a completely different method to tell where it is pointing that will work with any display:...

By "Pictures" you wouldn't happen to mean "images" would you? "Image" is jargon for a file that contains a file system, sort of like a zip file, but not really.

In case anyone didn't already know, Portal was developed by a group of DigiPen students (now graduates I imagine) who produced a similar game as a school project: Narbacular Drop.

I'll vote for "probably". At any rate it would have a significantly easier time with it than we would because its wings would give it a propulsion advantage. I would imagine that given enough time in this magical environment they'd evolve to use their tail feathers like a fish and propel themselves ...

The worst part about the theft of the idea is that they didn't even do it right. Without the sensors on the TV, the controller cannot sense its position relative to it. This means: can't be used to replace a lightgun, among other things. I also think that having the analog stuck to the 6DOF controll...

It just sounds weak and silly no matter how many times I run it though. especially when compared to names like Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
You mean despite being compared to names like Xbox360 and Playstation 3?

As a rabidly loyal Nintendo fan, I just want to say: WTF Nintendo? W...T...F...? Although, I would like to renew my offer to bet one case of MGD that Ben is wrong and the console will be profitable for the company. Hell, it would probably be popular for them even if a singal unit never sold in any U...

As was mentioned, Flash is probably the easiest environment, but I doubt you'd learn a whole lot. C/C++ and similar languages are harder to learn, and usually require either a large investment of time or a good amount of talent to work well with, however it is the most versitile way to go. http://ww...

Why-oh-why would you want to do that? TI-83s are significantly more awesome than any gameboy. You can't program your own gameboy games in the middle of a statistics calss can you? I didn't think so.

I'd like to flame you ben, because I get a lot of joy out of that :P But unfortunatly you're probably right. With any luck it will be some sort of dual-release that works on both a GC and a Rev, but only certain features are accessable on the Rev (sort of like the tingle tuner, but hopefully less st...

There is no emulator on the 10in1s. None. Those games are simulated versions. They are re-written for the NOAC.

In theory you could add more games to the 10in1, but they'd have to be NES/Famicom games (and it would still require far more work than it is worth).

Exactly. For the best wargamming and RPGing, I prefer to make my own rules with friends and use those. We usually use legos. Legos are awesome.
